17th december I need 2 no can I get help with this I'm on universal credit so cant afford a solicitor do I need one or can I have my own say in court

You don't need a solicitor - you can represent yourself in court.

You would be best to prepare a written response to the allegations, going through everything, so you can give this to the judge at court - it's easier than having to try to remember everything you want to say and also having to respond under pressure at. court.

Is there anything else I can clarify for you at this stage?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
So do I just state what is lies and things like that

Exactly - and if you have evidence to prove that the allegations are false you can mention this too.

Once you have put together your statement, we can look over it for you.

I hope this helps?
